Topic to clarify the acronymus that players use before their nick


#1

Well fellas, i’m curious about the meaning of the acronymus that most players uses before their nick when playing. What is the meaning of:

MH

CoL

LxG

TA

GU

U.Syn

IFC

UVG ?


#2

It’s the name of their sponsors or group that supports them. CoL would be Team Complexity (i.e. Col.cc.Combofiend). CC being Cross Counter.


#3

Some are sponsors
Complexity Cross Counter
Unveil Gaming

Some are player groups
The Arena
Maximum Hype

IFC isn’t either, I believe, Yipes just is ** I**n F------ Control

Yeah, more often than not, those are acronyms of the companies that sponsor players. Those companies pay their fare to travel to major tournaments. If a non sponsored player consistently does well @ majors and starts to earn a reputation as an emerging top player, lots of times they will eventually earn a sponsorship.
